Virtual Homecoming – Digital Meeting with Family


Mudik Virtual Feature

This year's Ramadan coincides with the COVID-19 pandemic period and has an impact on the prohibition of Eid homecoming. Of course this makes sad for some people, including me who rarely meet with other large families outside the city.

But for the common good, we can hold back and make friendships with family digitally. One way is to utilize applications on smartphones that already support video calls.

I myself use the WhatsApp application to make video calls with my relatives in Bandung. Before making a video call, I need to make sure the internet speed of the service provider is used so that the conversation is stable, smooth, and uninterrupted.

Here I use the services of the operator Indosat Ooredoo for daily activities because it already supports networks up to 4G. To test the internet speed, I use the Speedtest by Ookla application.

Based on three tests, the 4G network from Indosat Ooredoo has good speed for video calls, chatting, and surfing the internet.

In the first test, the application shows Indosat Ooredoo's speed reaching 20.3 Mbps for downloads and 7.48 Mbps for uploads. As for the second test, the operator's speed slightly decreased to 14 Mbps for downloads and 4.95 for uploads. Finally, the speed changes to 11.3 Mbps for downloads and 3.22 Mbps for uploads.

Although it is changing, the speed of Indosat Ooredoo shown by the Speedtest by Ookla application is still fast for video calls. Furthermore, I immediately contacted my brother by using the WhatsApp application.

During the video call process, the sound and video displayed on the WhatsApp application can run smoothly and smoothly. In addition to hospitality, I also discussed interesting topics so that I did not have a conversation for 1 hour 19 minutes from 21:01 WIB until 22:20 WIB.

Quota used by WhatsApp during the video call process reaches 308.8 Mbps. You could say this quota is used according to the use of video calls long enough plus the smoothness of the video and sound that is displayed during the conversation.

With the smooth running of this network, I can make a good friendship digitally with families outside the city smoothly. For me this is enough to treat the prohibition of going home during the pandemic.

I happen to be using a 50GB Freedom Combo package with a main quota of 25GB (24 hours), a local quota of 15GB (24 hours), and a 10GB night quota (01.00 – 06.00).

You could say this package is quite affordable because it is priced at Rp150,000. Night quota, which is rarely used on a normal day, during the month of Ramadhan can be used at dawn until sunrise.

Indosat Ooredoo also has other packages that are more affordable to support daily activities. Even in the month of Ramadan, the Freedom Quota package has appeared at an affordable price.

Although the quota offered is large, the Freedom Quota Today package only allows us to use a 1GB quota every day. If the quota limit runs out, the speed will be adjusted. Furthermore, the quota will be reset every day.

Furthermore, the Unlimited package from Indosat Ooredoo has changed to Freedom U with attractive benefits. We can get access to unlimited social media applications, such as WhatsApp, LINE, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and others.
